Latest Blog.... September is when we think about cutting our wildflower meadows - a long,
tiring job as we have three big meadows and several smaller 'mini-meadows'
in the garden. The latter have been wonderful this year,
in fact they get better and better and are well suited to
smaller gardens, whereas the larger meadows have flowered
quickly and gone over with no hint of a knapweed or lady's
bedstraw which usually persist into September.
